WHAT STANDARDS DO WE EXPECT OUR LOCAL MP TO LIVE BY?

Helen from The Brook

Politicians have to be thick skinned and live with more scrutiny than the average voter. Rightly so, and this includes Nick Smith.

"We know that he is feeling under pressure in his seat of Nelson this year, but staggering about in the dead of night, ranting about Nazis and having to be forcibly removed from the chamber is not the way to behave as an MP."

"Wood said Smith's behaviour was unlikely to endear him to local voters, who want an MP focused on representing them."

Māpua Willing Wheels -
Voluntary Drivers Community Transport

Happy Birthday - It’s our 1st Birthday!

Māpua Willing Wheels are celebrating their first birthday, having been operational since August 2020. The need for reliable and affordable transport for Māpua and Districts residents was highlighted in the 2019 Residents Community Wellbeing Survey. The fact that the team of volunteer drivers are still going strong a year later shows the demand is there, with many requests coming from repeat customers. The service has been very warmly and positively received and the Wheels team are thrilled to have the support of many local businesses through sponsorship and displaying of their posters. The volunteers have enjoyed meeting new people and being of service to residents in their community. The service is available to anyone that needs it……
